How do I treat an oily stain on my granite or marble?

Q. How do I treat an oily stain on my granite or marble?

A. For oily stains our favorite is acetone, which is available at any hardware or paint store. (Forget your nail polish remover. Some of them contain other chemicals, and some other ones contain no acetone what-so-ever.) Be sure to take all appropriate precations when using chemicals.

For Biological stains use regular household bleach.
